Exclusive: Dread Central Invades the 2010 Streamy Awards: Ghostfacers Update! Fear Clinic Coverage!



Streamy AwardsOn a windy, overcast Sunday afternoon the 2010 Streamy Awards took over the Orpheum Theater in downtown Los Angeles. Even though the FearNet webseries “Fear Clinic,” directed by Robert Hall and starring genre favorites Robert Englund, Kane Hodder, Danielle Harris, and Lisa Wilcox, stood alone to represent our favorite genre, that doesn’t mean there wasn’t a gaggle of horror-related goodies to indulge in while working the red carpet event before the show.

Before the Streamy Awards were under way, Dread Central’s red carpet team of Heather Wixson and Brian Smith had the opportunity to catch up with some new faces in horror as well as some of the genre’s most beloved personalities.

Since we never want to deprive our readers of any sort of awesomeness, Dread Central has cooked up two videos from the Streamy Awards red carpet event. The first video is chock-full of interviews.

Being uber-fans of “Supernatural”, we were excited to chat with both AJ Buckley and Travis Wester, stars of the new CW short-form series “Ghostfacers.” “Ghostfacers” is a spin-off from the Season One “Supernatural” episode called “Hell House” in which the Winchester brothers encounter a hapless team of ghost hunters from a reality show who get more than they bargained for when they find a haunted house was a little more evil than they were prepared to deal with.

Look for “Ghostfacers” to debut its first two episodes on April 15th in conjunction with the 100th episode of “Supernatural.”

Also on the red carpet at the Streamy Awards was funny guy Josh Gad from the webseries “Woke Up Dead,” in which he stars alongside other funny guy Jon Heder, who gave us an update on the future of that series as well as some laughs with a large yellow bunny.

Dread Central also had time to talk with actress Cooper Harris, who starred in not only MegaShark vs. Giant Octopus but also Mega Piranha as well as the upcoming SyFy original Meteor Apocalypse. She talked a bit about working in the new campy wave of horror films and with hunky co-star Lorenzo Lamas.

Next on the list of interviewees was the creative team behind the dark thriller web series called “Compulsions,” including director Nathan Atkinson and writer/creator Bernie Su.

We also had time to catch up with all-around awesome guy Ted Raimi, who gave us an update on where we can see him next and showed his love for the Dread Central team.

Our second video shifts its focus over to our beloved Dr. Andover and the rest of the gang from “Fear Clinic,” including Englund, who was nominated for Best Actor at the Streamy Awards for his performance in the series, director Hall, actress Harris, and creator/writer Aaron Drane. They spoke to us about how it felt to be not only three-time Streamy Award nominees but how the Internet is becoming the future of the entertainment industry. Plus, Dread Central learned on the red carpet that it looks like there might be the chance that horror fans will get to see a second season of “Fear Clinic.”

Both Hall and show producer Mark Johnson confirmed that while nothing is official just yet, there have been discussions about putting together another set of webisodes since the first run of the “Fear Clinic” web series was so successful (with around 3 million views collectively).

Englund also gave an update on the status of his upcoming project Tamora Gamble, and Harris spoke about where horror fans can see her next, including Stake Land and Hatchet 2.

    Did You Catch Chucky and King Kong’s Cameo in the Trailer For Steven Spielberg’s New Movie?



    You may remember a few months back there was a kick-ass trailer for Steven Spielberg’s new action-adventure flick Ready Player One that sported a quick glimpse of not only Freddy Krueger, but Stephen King’s Christine as well.

    If those slick horror nods weren’t enough for you, today we have the new trailer for the film and guess who shows up? Yep, you guess it (from the headline) but Mr. Charles Lee Ray lends a helping knife to a battle, and the king of the jungle, Kong himself!

    Very cool.

    The cameos in the trailer is one of those “blink-and-you’ll-miss-it” things, but let’s hope he has a bit more screentime in the actual movie. By the way, is Ready Player One reminding anyone else of the “Imagination Land” episode(s) of “South Park”…?

    You can check out the trailer below and then make sure to let us know what you think!

    The film is directed by Steven Spielberg, based on the novel by Ernie Cline, and stars Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, Simon Pegg, Mark Rylance, T.J. Miller, Hannah John-Kamen, and Letitia Wright.

    Ready Player One hits theaters March 30, 2018.


    In the near future, outcast teenager Wade Watts escapes from his bleak surroundings by logging in to the OASIS, a globally networked virtual utopia where users can lead idyllic alternate lives. When the eccentric billionaire who created the OASIS dies, he offers up his vast fortune as the prize in an elaborate treasure hunt. Along with gamers from around the world, Wade joins the adventure, and quickly finds himself pitted against powerful corporate foes and other ruthless competitors who will do anything, in the oasis or the real world, to reach the treasure first.

    The Shape of Water Scores 7 Nominations at This Year’s Golden Globes



    Earlier today we let you know Jordan Peele’s horror-thriller Get Out scored nods at this year’s Golden Globes for Best Motion Picture and Best Actor – both in the Comedy category.


    That said, another film from our beloved genre is getting some love in the form of writer-director Guillermo del Toro’s new creature feature The Shape of Water.

    The film was given nominations in a staggering 7 categories including Best Motion Picture – Drama, Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama for Sally Hawkins, Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture for Octavia Spencer, and Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture for Richard Jenkins.

    Del Toro also scored nods for his work as director and co-screenwriter for the film.

    You can check out the full list of nominations right HERE.

    The film is directed by Guillermo del Toro, written by Vanessa Taylor and del Toro, and stars Sally Hawkins, Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Michael Stulbarg, and Doug Jones.

    The Shape of Water is currently playing in theaters.

    In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is trapped in a life of silence and isolation. Elisa’s life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment.

    Get Out Scores Golden Globe Nominations… as a Comedy



    It was a few weeks back now when we let you guys in on the rather puzzling news that the Golden Globes was considering Jordan Peele horror-thriller Get Out as a nominee…

    As a comedy.

    As strange as that news was, it seems it wasn’t a joke in its own right as Jordan Peele’s Get Out has scored a nomination for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy. The news broke this morning with the full release of this year’s nominations via EW.

    You can check out the full list HERE.

    One cool thing is that actor Daniel Kaluuya also scored a nod for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – again, Musical or Comedy. Sad and borderline ridiculous that Peele didn’t score nods as director OR screenwriter. For shame, Golden Globes.

    What do you think of this news? Are you just glad Get Out got SOME love from this year’s Gloden Globes, or could you care less about awards season? Let us know below!

    Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy and Dean. At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship; but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could never have imagined.
